Arab Notables Expelled from Israeli Village for Non-cooperation

Eight notables from the Arab village of Abu-Gosh, about 10 miles north of Jerusalem, were expelled today by the Israel authorities to various parts of the country for a period of six months. They were charged with refusing to cooperate with the authorities in their efforts to find the persons who threw two hand grenades into an institution for sick Jewish children located in the neighborhood. Among those expelled was the chairman of the local council.
